It’s Saturday, my alternate Sunday since I return to teaching tomorrow. A brief rain cell passed through not more than an hour ago and dampness clings to the world around The Haasienda. It must have been quite the water dump as I can hear a lot of water splashing on the Shroyer Road side of the house. The Sisters are busy scattering about the deck and yard in search of excitement while The Seniors lounge on each side of my chair, Erma waiting for the remnants of my cereal bowl.
My Friday was rather low-key until the evening when Laura and I went to The Neon to see MARCEL THE SHELL WITH SHOES ON [< video trailer]. Once again, it was a delightful, sweet movie. We did, however, have a family behind us, parents or grandparents with several young (but old enough to know better) children that were apparently on their first outing ever to be amongst humanity. The one young child consistently kicked Laura’s seat (the rows are nice and wide) and the gentleman, seated directly behind me narrated the entire damn movie and at times opted to be the star of the event with all his non-quiet asides. The ill-bred crew behind us did not diminish the delight in loving the film.
Here is another video about MARCEL THE SHELL WITH SHOES featuring the voice actor for Marcel.
Although my weather app indicates no more rain, the skies are a heavy dark grey and I am trying to determine whether or not to remain working on the deck.
Today will be filled with research, planning, and hopefully some writing. Other than that, the docket is slim other than after-Mass dinner with Mama Kay and The After-Mass Primetime Dancers.
Whatever is on your docket, make it a great day!
